The Witcher 3: Twisted Firestarter walkthrough

Here's how to complete the Twisted Firestarter quest in The Witcher 3.

A basic rule of any RPG, including The Witcher 3, is to always help a weapons merchant in need. The Twisted Firestarter quest is no different, and sees you helping out a dwarf who's forge has been burnt down.

If you need a helping hand tracking down the culprit and bringing them to justice, here's our guide on how to complete the Twisted Firestarter quest in The Witcher 3.

The Witcher 3: Twisted Firestarter walkthrough

To kick off the Twisted Firestarter quest in The Witcher 3, go to the forge opposite the noticeboard in the centre of the the village and you'll meet Willis, the sarcastic, grumpy dwarf. He needs help tracking down whoever set his business alight.

Search behind the forge using your Witcher sense and you'll find some footprints to follow, as well as the smell of p*ss and vodka. As you head down to the river and bridge, you'll find a chest to loot, and by the boat another clue.

Go under the bridge and on the other side you'll find someone's boots. Draw your sword here as you get pounced on by Drowners. Make sure you loot the bodies for a Drowner Brain - a handy addition to your alchemy purse. Once killed, continue to follow the footprints into the village and the building, where you'll find Napp bleeding from his wounds.

He'll try and bribe you, which you can take, but it's better to use a sign on him for 25 EXP and escort him back to the dwarf for another 25 EXP. Back at the forge, Willis with give you 20 coins and you'll gain another 50 XP, as well as the promise of a good price on weapons and armour from him in the future.
